When it comes to psychological films (or series), this ‘’sub-genre’’ tells you upfront what kind of movie you are going to watch; this type of movies tends to play with the audience’s mind; either in a clear way, where you know exactly what is going on, and you know the characters’ struggles, but there is virtually nothing that can be done to help them, or they twist the plot back and forth so that your mind just does not seem to wrap itself around the truth. Yes, this type of movies can be extremely fun to watch.
Since it is not actually a movies genre, the term ‘psychological’ usually comes with one or more other movie genres, and the genres it blends the best withare without the doubt thriller, horror, and mystery. Who can forget Psycho? A story of a young man, living alone in his mother’s house, running a motel, and is truly very charming. But along with the secret that he is not really living alone, there is far more to this man’s life, and we turned out to be the way he is. To find that out, the series Bates Motel tells the whole story of Norman Bates and his condition. Other movies that also hold a great deal of suspense, drama, and mysteries, along with a psychological roller-coaster, are The Shinning, Secret Window, The Blair Witch Project, and the great trilogy The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, and Red Dragon, followed by Hannibal Rising.
On the other bank of this river, sits a different crowd of psychological movies; the movies that play with your mind from the very beginning, slowly tangling you into the story, and then dropping the bomb at the very end, usually leaving you completely speechless; Cube, The Others, The Sixth Sense, Memento, and The Machinist.
As for the series, if you really want to be blown away, try the series Hannibal, Grimm, or maybe you would enjoy something a little more like House of Cards or Breaking Bad. And even though it may sound unnatural, but if you enjoy a laugh or two on the journey, a series such as Castle, Grey’s Anatomy, and House are a great blend of psychological waves, secrets, and a touch of humor.
